Is this nighttime dental guard made of safe materials?

I've been using a Dentek
dental guard for my nighttime teeth grinding and clenching.
My concern is whether it's safe for long-term use. The website says it's made of EVA and EMA, which I'm guessing are ethylene-vinyl acetate
and ethyl methyl acrylate

Are these materials commonly used in mouth guards? What are the guards you get from a dentist made of? I feel a million times better since I've started using it - no more severe headaches or jaw pain - so I definitely need a guard of some sort.
